Davóne Tines, bass-baritone; Adam Nielsen, piano

Davóne Tines presents a highly personal recital in the form of a mass, bringing together works of J.S. Bach; spirituals arranged by Tyshawn Sorey, Moses Hogan and Tines himself; rarely heard songs of Julius Eastman and Margaret Bonds; and a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw.

A true breakthrough artist, Davóne Tines is a “charismatic, full-voiced bass-baritone” says The New York Times. Tines makes his Da Camera debut with well-loved works by Brahms and Schubert, and expands the repertoire with songs by rediscovered African-American innovator Julius Eastman and new songs by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw.

Davóne Tines was recently named a Next Generation Leader by Time magazine, which called him “A charismatic and commanding artist who carries his towering 6’ 2” body lightly”; “poised for a major career” and “among the most compelling classically trained singers working in America today.”

“A singer of immense power and fervor.” — The Los Angeles Times

“brazen and brilliant… the music commands attention: wild, grand, delirious, demonic, an uncontainable personality surging into sound.” — The New Yorker on Julius Eastman
